Washington, July 27. It is stated at
the war department that General Otis
has made no communications to the de

are liberal in their terms. This letter
and the instructions of Secretary Hay
to the Philippine commission, are the
basis of governments which are to be
established in the Philippines.

from Otis yesterday, one of which an
nounced a fight with bandits in the isl

some men of the Twenty-third, was

dent of the Dominican republic, was
assassinated at Moca, Santo Domingo,

Comments at Washington on the Event.
Washington, July 27. Pending offi
cial notice of the assassination of
President Heureaux (of the Dominican
republic), which has not been received
at this writing, no formal action will
be taken by this government. Officials
here recall that attempts have been
made heretofore on the life of Heu
reaux. Secretary Hay paid a brief
tribute to the work of the deceased
president, saying he understood that
he had given the country a good ad
ministration. Should the developments
of the next few days show a feeling of
unrest and uncertainty regarding the
future affairs of the island, a United
States man-of-war will be dispatched
to that vicinity to look out for the
protection of American interests.

Paris, July 27. The ministerial
council decided Tuesday to dismiss

him to the mere rank of general of

Madrid. July 27. The discussion of
the army bill in the senate yesterday
led to an exciting scene. General Wey
ler, arguing against any reduction of
the strength of the army, warned the
government that the present situation
made a revolution highly probable,
since it had never been so easy for the
army and the people to make common
cause. He himself, he said, had never
thought -of heading a rising, but it
must be confessed that revolutions
sometimes cleared the political at

of regeneration. I
Senor Dato. minister offthe Interior,
replying, severely censurofl Weyler, de

said: "Secretary Alger was secretary
of war during the conduct of the most
successful war in the hiBtory of the
United States. It achieved the great
est results in the shortest possible
space of time. Its quick aad victorious
conclusion while he was at the head of

out most prominently and cannot be
disputed. Of course, there were mis
takes. There are always mistakes; but
in this particular war the mistakes
were infinitesimal compared with the

"Secretary Alger."contlnued the sen
ator, speaking deliberately and with
emphasis, "has been compelled to en
dure a series' of undeserved not to
say brutal assaults. He did not de
serve the harsh things which were
said of him. but he bore them bravely,
standing manfully under the .abuse
which might otherwise have been
thrown at the president. Time will
vindicate him. There will be a reac
